There have been a lot of boxing gyms popping up in Maryland lately. When choosing one you want to choose carefully. First off, experience will help. Now we know most people aren’t planning on stepping through the ropes anytime soon, but doesn’t it make sense to learn the correct form when learning to box. Not only do you want to learn from someone who has boxed but also someone who has coached fighters. The last thing you want is someone who has some fitness experience. You will get all of these at Shaddock MMA Fitness.
In 1987 John “Bones” Shaddock a Golden Gloves boxer was working at a health club in Vermont. He had been asked by his older brother Chris to help out teaching his brothers Boxercise class. Shaddock, a New England Diamond Belt Boxing Champion eventually left his brother’s gym in Vermont and taught at multiple gyms up and down the East coast. John didn’t only have boxing experience but worked as a trainer being certified in fitness training and plyometrics through N.A.H.F. Coach Shaddock has worked with amateur and professional boxers and MMA fighters helping them get ready for fights and even working their corners.
In 2008 John opened Shaddock MMA Fitness and began teaching Fitbox.
